"Eating Dinner" is the seventh Simpsons short. It aired on The Tracey Ullman Show on July 12, 1987. It was the last short of season 1.


When attempting to call the family for dinner, Marge gets ticked off, as the family do not arrive. However, upon the threat that anyone who does not arrive will go without any dessert, the family quickly scoot to the table. She then points out the family forgot to say grace before eating. Homer conducts grace while Maggie innocuously looks around the room, and Marge comments that the family could do with learning manners, as they are all slurping their soup. She then tells them that dinner should not be eaten in silence and be a time of communication, so Homer suggests Bart to fetch the television, which they all watch as the short ends.
